    Have to say, that is one thing I'd like to see different - I'd like to be able to modify the standard profiles, so that the buttons on the main screen are still easy to use...
    Thanks for the tip Barneyferd!

I realize we aren't supposed to run the pumps above 1500 rpms as it can drain the battery however I think this is insignificant (Please tell me if I'm wrong about that!)

    At about the 100 hour mark we bought 600 lbs of lead. We put 150 lbs under the port bag, 150 under the starboard bag. 50 under the seats on each side right about where the tower is. The last 200 lbs gets moved between the bow locker (when we want to motor over to the fuel dock) or on the floor as far aft as possible when surfing. I gotta say, the lead was definitely worth it.

    This is our first surf boat so we don’t have any other perspective. We like to switch from side to side. (I recently got a ride on a Malibu that had a wrist remote that allowed the surfer to swap the wave. The on the X22 it requires some pretty good communication between the driver and the surfer. Maybe MC will offer that in the future.)

    I’m curious about the above posts that say fill the switchback tank to 100%. I assumed that the reason that is not recommenced is so that it will quickly move the wave from one side to another. For those of you filling the switchback to 100% are you also switching the wave from side to side while surfing?

    Thanks very much for starting this thread! We are at 94 hours after getting the boat the first week of June. Family is loving it. My kids do like to switchback and we keep everything at 100%. As you say, it does take a little surfer/driver coordination. Also, when you flip sides, the center ballast automatically begin to drain so you need to quickly stop it. It's fairly easy to stop it in about a second and a half at 99% and fill it right back to 100% in two seconds.

    I thought about buying the parts and installing the OEM backrest. I decided against it because it doesn’t raise the cushion very much. It is a nice idea, but it isn’t particularly useful. (Just one man’s opinion.). The attached pictures gives perspective regarding how much higher my redneck version is compared to the OEM version.

    I did reuse the stock cushion, and I didn’t drill any holes. There was no need to patch anything.

    My original thought was that I was going to make a bracket out of stainless steel. I started out making what I thought would be a prototype out of poplar. It turned out good enough that I just painted it. Hahahahaha.

    Just stowed her for hibernation after a tremendous 96 hours in her first season.

    Will dream about this wave all winter.

    Oh yeah, I forgot. OP said pics are required.

    My boat didn’t come with the optional adjustable seat back on the starboard bench, so I made one. It took a little tweaking to get it to be just the way we wanted it, but now it’s a lot more adjustable (and comfortable) than the optional backrest. There is a small downside. Access to the cooler now takes a little effort.

    In order to lift the starboard bench to get into the cooler you must rotate the backrest out of the way. To do it you first loosen the knobs indicated by the red arrows then slide the cushion down as shown by the light blue arrow. (The other option is to move the helm seat forward to get it out of the way for the next step.)

    Then you must loosen the knobs to which the yellow arrows point, and then the cushion will flop down per the green arrow.

    The only photo I have of it in the down position was taken before construction was complete:

    Moose those settings in your 1st post are mind blowing. The wave was actually too big for my wife. We did that setup with a few hundred pound of lead to move around and 4 adults in the boat. The regular wave was nearly the same as stock settings, 800 lbs of lead,, and 15 people in the boat.

    Pic of boat coming soon.

    Thank you moosehead. Built a custom profile with your specs and it produces a great/different wake. Its fun to play around on a faster/firmer wake like this! Greatly appreciated and please keep the info coming!

    Both MM and I are taller, heavier riders (respectively) and the push way back is pretty remarkable. You have to pump to recover from way back but that is true for any craft. Also note MM’s and other TT members surf settings are higher speeds to create length, but after they have slammed the rear to get size/steepness/push. Slowing to 11MPH should get a steeper wave with push, but it’ll be shorter.

    I also early on tried to engage the bow with lead and crew as the new hulls have that bulge from amidships to the front. Instinct was to plow that down deeper, but it just wasn’t the same as first getting rear ballast prioritized.

    What crew/lead are you running? We are most often 2 aboard plus surfer and 2 of those aboard together total 220 lbs. Once we add another 200lb crew member the wave gets serious on the X22. Just moving 100 lbs of lead from under convertible rear seat to under sacks changes the wave all else equal, this as most boats are sensitive to setup. Stock settings are perhaps is less sensitive.

    Super interesting insights. We came from an X25 and I was happier with the X22 keeping the nose lower with full stock settings, so was a little dismayed these new settings have it riding like an MB or Supra.

    I had no complaints over the stock settings, but wanted to try to tweak to replicate the steeper/rampier wave for my neighbor since we switch off boats fairly often. The higher speed/ballast of the specs you posted got us that, but I actually thought the length decreased further out back with the steeper wave/higher speeds which is counter to what you're saying. Stock, I was able to get 20-25' off the back without too much trouble, modified I start to wash out at the 20' mark.

    50% of the time it's one driver (~180#) and one rider. 45% of the time it's one driver and one adult passenger (total weight 320# or so). The last 5% we have 6-10 on board and the wave is just ridiculous. I run no lead but do have 150# sitting in the garage to be put in.
